This topic/thread is about the Working structure introduced in Potsdam. It is described on the wiki https://wiki.14mmm.org/ under the title The TransforMap Circles (open to volunteers!)
The term Circle was chosen to represent the idea that they’re not rigid and separate teams, but that they represent circles of activities whose membership may overlap.
A way to understand circles in sociocratice terms is to say that inside a circle are people who commit to implement a consensus around a set of specific tasks. Outside the circle, but still part of the TransforMap community are all those who give their consent to the implementation of tasks, but do not actively contribute to it.
